Replaying Edits

By Jeph Paul

About

I'm a web developer based out of Bangalore, India.  Some of my code can be found at https://github.com/cosmiclattes. 

ReplayEdits was my project from the first round of the IEG.

why Data Visualization ?






Conveys the story and much more visually!

Vandalism Patterns



The spikes are the entire article being deleted & then the edit being undone.
George W Bush is very interesting :-)


Again for the same period along with the enlarged version of the graph. The edits & their reverts can be seen clearly.

Quite often ClueBot did many of the reverts

Evolution of the article

Editor BEHAVIOR & Other q's


Do they make singular contributions and move on?
Article Vs Edit count per editor Graph?

Active editors, do they move from an article to article or do they own articles ?

The edit graph & Slider


  • The enlarged version visually conveys the time taken between edits
  • Highlights edits by the same editor
  • Is a separate library & can be used in your project to select a set of edits
